Sending Off Preachers

To read the Bible in a year, read Acts 13:1–23.
The church at Antioch had prophets and teachers (Acts 13:1), some of whom, while doing spiritual things, the Spirit called out for a special work, “As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ Then, having fasted and prayed, and laid hands on them, they sent them away” (Acts 13:2, 3). The church and the other prophets and teachers, sent off Barnabas and Saul by fasting, praying, and laying hands upon the two. Obviously, they all took the work of preaching seriously.
How serious are you about sending out preachers?
